Hi, my name is Donnalynne Lefever and now we are going to move on to the next kind of ragging which is the applied method. Again, it is just putting it over a base paint that's already there. We’re going to start with the rags and I actually don't think I have talked it about them in the time before but let me just explain where the rags are that I came from. These are old sheets, this is an old linen, they can be anything. What's best for the sheets or the rags that you use especially in this particular one is that they be all cotton. The polyester doesn't absorb the paint right and it reacts a little peculiarly. So, what you do with the dabbing on method is just ball it up into a kind of a funky little ball just so that you got some imprint space and I’m going to use the interference gold paint again, dab it in, swirl it around. This one may take a little bit more than the plastic because this is actually going to absorb the paint versus the plastic which didn't. So, as you go to put it on. You can get the same thing. You just want to watch out that you don't make it too blobby but at the same time you need if you get not enough paint on there, it gets really, really thin. So you’ll just have to keep going back and putting some more on and not flinging it all over yourself like I am. And also this one can be not as tricky as the plastic in getting in the corners because the plastic is little more uncontrollable, but when you do go into a corner, you want to just dab like that once. And then don't push too terribly hard or you will end up with a big blob. There’s one thing that this one—well, this one is the most forgiving even though I think you can do with the plastic as well. You can plastic or rag your basecoat color back on top of if it's too big and thick and blobby and that will help prevent that, so that you don't have that as your overall look. So, that is with the interference gold which is a full strength paint. Let’s see where it goes if we use the glaze. It shouldn't be an issue. This one should actually read a little better than the plastic. Again, we will just put the, ball it up again, get a nice imprint that you want to look at. Yes, there we go and you can see that if as you do it, if you liked it really thin you’d have to go back over with your basecoat with this. But you can always go and vary it. The other good thing and especially with this one because you can see it easier is a way to even out your darks to your lights. It's just to go back and put a dark in the middle. So, if it is too light at some place just put a dark there and then that helps to make it look a little better. And as you will go, your rag will eventually, especially if you are doing it over a whole wall will get saturated and you won't like it. But you just keep twisting and twisting until you’ve used your rag to a point where you can't stand it any longer and that's it for this one.
